FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Friday: Brian Kelly

Lakers star Kobe Bryant joined the show to talk about the anti-gay derogatory remark he made to ref Bennie Adams and the 100K fine from the NBA.

“It was just stupid and ignorant,” Bryant said of his remarks toward  Adams. He really wanted to apologize afterward.

“In this situation, seeing how many people were affected, it helps you understand the weight that comes from that word,” Bryant said. “That’s why it’s very important for me to communicate how sorry I am to use the word.”

Bryant really hopes that this ends up being a positive and can lead to people stop staying that word. He did admit that he had said that word before.

Bryant said he did officially appeal the fine, but just as a matter of process. He won’t really fight it. “The commissioner did a great job,” Bryant said.

Bryant said he was so frustrated at that point because he’s frustrated in general at the way the Lakers playing.

Dan asked if he’s more animated this year because Phil Jackson is retiring and he realizes the championship run can end. Kobe said he’s no different than any year and there were years where there was more pressure.

That being said, Bryant, of course, really wants to bring it home for Jackson. “Personally, we want to win this one for Phil,” Bryant said.

Bryant also commented on the MVP candidates. He is really impressed with Derrick Rose developing a jumper. And he thinks LeBron had a great season in Miami.
